Gulf Trade: Seizing the Opportunities

Trade barriers and embargoes are almost always deleterious: not only to the states directly involved, but also to the global economy at large.

Focusing on recent events in the Gulf, this conference will highlight the consequences of trade barriers to ordinary citizens.

Toward mitigating these impacts, insights will also be offered on the market spaces that have been vacated by these measures, presenting real commercial opportunities for foreign businesses.

Finally, speakers will chart a positive, free-trading vision forward: toward securing prosperous economies in the Gulf, Europe and the world.
